NAME
       e2label - Change the label on an ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem

SYNOPSIS
       e2label device [ new-label ]

DESCRIPTION
       e2label	will display or change the filesystem label on the ext2, ext3, or ext4 filesystem
       located on device.

       If the optional argument new-label is not present, e2label will simply display the current
       filesystem label.

       If  the optional argument new-label is present, then e2label will set the filesystem label
       to be new-label.  Ext2 filesystem labels can be at most 16 characters long;  if	new-label
       is longer than 16 characters, e2label will truncate it and print a warning message.

       It is also possible to set the filesystem label using the -L option of tune2fs(8).
